A Couple and Headshots ~ Headshots San Francisco ~

Valerie is an actress and Andrew is a doctor.  They both needed new headshots and we set about to do just that.  This was quite unique to have a couple together at the same time but it was fantastic for me because their connection kept the mood light, fun and funny and totally authentic.  In between moments they would come together after perfectly supporting the other during their time and do sweet things like the final image.

No matter what the purpose of your images are the true feelings need to be authentic and this is really the biggest part of my job.  The kind of camera I use or the lenses are completely irrelevant.  It’s the connection between my subject and me, not my camera, that counts.  So when I work to make you laugh or give queues then I’m working to make the best image of you possible.  In this case, I had help from a spouse!!  Good luck you two on everything!

Professional Head Shots and why you should have them… ~San Francisco Headshot Photographer~

One of my favorite things as a photographer is shooting head shots for actors.  First, they are fun and second, they are so comfortable in front of the camera.  I’ve worked with Eddie before and we worked on shots to get him gigs like a detective, cop etc.  It worked.  It’s important to all actors to keep your photos current, have a lot of options and different looks.

Remember this is your calling card.  An agent will decide in 1 second if they think you may be right and that photo your roommate took in the backyard will get you noticed but it won’t be in a good way. It is really important to present your in the best possible way.  Choices by casting directors are made in seconds and your shot has to touch them.  It has to speak to them.  Money may be tight but if you don’t have great shots you’ll never be the actor you want to be.  This is your business card!  I can’t be a photographer without a camera and this is the same for an actor.   So be serious when it comes to your shots.   This time we worked on the “nice guy”, the “boyfriend” and body shots.  If you’ve got it, flaunt it!

Eddie is great so keep your eye out for him! Eddie will tell you…”Those pics have helped so much, I’ve gotten called in for more TV shows this season than any season before, so its no coincidence.”
